Re: A RAID ON BIG LOTS, CANDLES ETC.

I've recently discovered Big Lots and really like it. They seem to have many different things from the other stores but I do find it to be hit or miss. But during the holidays they really go all out and you can get some great bargains.

I am boycotting Slatkin candles. Must have saved hundreds of dollars purchasing candles at Big Lots.

As always, Oznell, I enjoy your buys at Big Lots!  I do go to this store around the holidays because there are always surprises at a great price.  The candles and pitcher are very appealing!

 

Years a go I bought a light up Charlie Brown in a costume at Halloween from Big Lots.  It is now standing on a table in my living room as part of my fall decor!  

 

Your post has given me motivation to pay a visit to the Big Lots store in my area !!!  Enjoy your buys!

@spiderw,  interestingly, this is a thread from early summer that someone 'refreshed',  but the pitchers I found back then still seem to be in stock at Big Lots.  At least, except the Fresh Roasted Coffee candle.  It sold out immediately, and even though I've been back several times, they don't seem to have it back in stock.  I loved that coffee scent!

Re: A RAID ON BIG LOTS, CANDLES ETC.

I just checked the Big Lots website and the coffee candle shows available there, and it's on sale for $5.99!  

 

We have BL in town and I always enjoy going there.  I LOVE their medium weight shower curtain liners, so I always grab some when I see them in stock.  That's what I just went in for, sadly they were out, but I did come home with $20 worth of snacks!  Not that I needed the snacks, but sometimes I like to treat myself!

 

I've seen your posts before and picked up several items based on your recommendations, so thank you @Oznell

I think the stores you recommend for these great buys should give you a commission!!!!!!

Re: A RAID ON BIG LOTS, CANDLES ETC.

Wow, @Catlady Nicole ,  thanks for the alert.  That is great to know the candle is still on the website!  It is so yummy and would be a good fall scent.   Yes, we usually have to leave with a few snacks in tow as well.  Their various popcorns, and hubby MUST have some of their exotic dried fruit...

 

@spiderw,  that would be nice, ha!  But no go, since then I doubt they'd want the occasional bad review that might come their way from me.  Some of these retailers need some tough love in the form of a scathing "pan".....

Sadly many continued to be duped by Harry Slatkin and pay overinflated prices for candles.
